its due to the blockage of debris from the 1st down pour that chock up the canal.......so when 2nd big down pour arrived in an hr interval...its total chock the canal and thus cause the flood.....PUB contractors hv 400 over workers to clean the debris in singapore to ensure no blockage of the drainage system. ....so issit good answer?

Well, PUB need to come up with a good reply/explaination as damages from the floods can come up to millions of dollars. Let's just see if there are any new flood occurance in Orchard after all that clean up and other action.

Friday was raining quite heavily, plenty of water ponding along PIE it was quite scary to see the water rise. Saturday rained in the morning and many more report of flooding. Is it really fault of PUB or is Singapore sinking like Venice. I have plenty to worry as I'm living on the ground floor! affraid

Look at the quote by the Minister of Env., blockage cause by the main canal going thru Orchard to the sea not able to take on the capacity of the rain recently also partly due to the constant diversion of this canal and the construction debris for the circle line and etc? PUB still to be blame wholefully?

That much you can enforced but the nation needs developing that pushes us back to the 70's with the constant flooding during the monsoon season. Laughing Not forgetting nature will have the last say, heavy rain coming down coinciding with high tide also a factor, so we will have to learn to live with it.
